Due to the rain last night, the temperature this morning was cooler than expected but not cold, so we wore our jackets for the journey. The journey to Regensberg was only short so we decided to take a scenic route to Berching as a mid point for lunch. This turned out to be a nice surprise as there was a Firefighters festival celebrating 150 years of service and all were welcome.

The main event was in a huge tent with a "band" providing the "entertainment." They were singing rousing marching songs and most people were joining in, it was a great atmosphere and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

There were stalls serving food and beer, we had a light lunch before moving on. This was an unexpectedly good stop.

We arrived in Regensberg at 1430h, checked in, got changed and were walking into the city shortly after 1530h.

We walked into the old town to a nice cold beer for me and a glass of wine for Sand.

We made our way through the cobbled streets to the Old Stone Bridge across the Danube which is reported to be the oldest bridge in Germany:

We found a small restaurant in one of the strees for our evening meal. Sand had curry bratwurst and I had a jambalaya:

The meal was lovely, mine was a "German" version of the jambalaya but still really nice. I couldn't finish it, we could have shared.

We move onto Munich tomorrow.
